Good Grief Family Camp

Good Grief Family Camp

Children Grieve Too...

Grieving children often feel alone because they may not know anyone their age who has experienced the death of a family member or friend. Grief comes in “waves” for children. Support can help your child whether it has been just weeks, several months, or even years since the loss. Good Grief Family Camp offers children and teens a full day of both support and fun. Your child will learn valuable tools to help them grieve in a healthy way, while connecting with other children who have also lost a loved one.
